I totally ruined this photo trying to get my own to post to IG right then! ha ha. But it was just too cute!
Mia totally didn't care about Olaf, obviously. But in a year or two she will LOVE this picture!
So many people! But you can kind of get an idea of the inside of the castle. So cool!
I have been dying to take a road trip and visit the Ice Castles in Midway, UT (seeing Frozen did me in!) and when I told Eric? He made my dream come true :) We'll call it an early birthday weekend for me. We had plans to meet up with our best friends and I was looking forward to a perfect day! Of course once we arrived we realized we needed snow boots. They rake the ice (to keep from getting to slippery, I'm sure) and some parts were deep and none of us had snow boots. Cue the attitude from Eric. And then my sweet, precious Mia wanted nothing more than to run around (which was hard to do because the snow/ice was deep in some areas) and play with the ice! So getting pictures with her was quite difficult, ha ha! And anytime we tried to help her get through the deep parts? Cue the attitude, ha ha!
BUT! The ice castle really was pretty magical! It was so fun to watch Mia explore and discover :) She was in heaven! And we enjoyed donuts and hot chocolate after we played in the castle... which is Mia's new favorite. She ate most of Eric's donut (which I was unaware of until after the fact) and her face lit up when she tried my hot chocolate and she wouldn't stop saying "num-num" until I gave her more! I only wish I had been able to take more pictures (and that I knew how to edit so that these could be amazing!) but I'm glad Eric treated me to this little getaway!
